Force of EvilForce of Evil (1948)
Dir. Abraham Polonsky
Feat. John Garfield, Thomas Gomez, Marie Windsor
Fascinating film noir in which crooked lawyer John Garfield turns on the mob to finance his gambling debts. This fiercely masculine morality tale is an acknowledged antecedent to the work of Scorsese. The director was soon blacklisted and would not make his second film until 1970.
Kiss of the VampireKiss of the Vampire (1963)
Dir. Don Sharp
Feat. Clifford Evans, Noel Willman, Edward de Souza
An ominous and highly-regarded Hammer horror in which a honeymooning couple are stranded in Bavaria where they become embroiled in the initiation rites of a diabolical creed.

This version has been newly…
Hunchback of Notre DameHunchback of Notre Dame (1939)

Charles Laughton is perfectly cast in this beautifully expressionistic version of the classic.
Pawnbroker, ThePawnbroker, The (1965)
Dir. Sidney Lumet
Feat. Rod Steiger
Rod Steiger gives a career-best performance as a Jewish pawnbroker whose new life in Spanish Harlem conjures haunting images of his Nazi prison camp past. Grim but powerful stuff.
